More fly boxes.
Fully utilizing scrap wood of my inventory I could make three,
Now I am ready to go fishing,
But there are still some more plastic cases for misc fishing items in my tackle box.
Next project is now defined.

Very nice. I assume the “flies” are hand-tied too?

Nice, that is wondering too, if you tied the flies? What did you use for the interiors?

Very nice boxes, and more facinating – they were made from scrap stock.

thank you very much for many encouraging comments.
some curiosity to know my fly.
say, 1/3 I tied by myself, 1/3 I bought from shops, 1/3 got from fishing buddy.

I like how you did the barrel hinges on some of the boxes. They make the exterior simple and smooth, keeping the focus on the beautiful woods.

Great looking fly boxes, well done.

Is that 1/2” self stick foam insulation you used to hold the flies?

Thanks for sharing
